Dear Dr Basil, I hope this letter finds mew well. My name is Celeste, and I am a Burmese kitten who was recently adopted by a human family. While I am grateful for their hospitality, I must say that I am struggling to connect with them. They are always trying to approach me, pet me, and give me treats, but I just don't feel like bonding with them. I mean, they are nice and all, but they are just not my cup of milk. Here is a list of things I don't like about my humans: 1. They talk to me in baby talk. I am a kitten, not a baby, and I find it patronizing.

2. They keep trying to pick me up. I am not a toy, and I do not appreciate being cat-handled.

3. They have weird smells. I prefer the smell of catnip, and their odours are just not pleasant.

4. They are always staring at me. It's creepy, and it makes me feel uncomfortable.

5. They make loud noises. Can't they be more quiet like me? The constant commotion is distressing.

6. They have way too many rules. I am a free spirit, and I do not like being confined or restricted.

7. They are always taking pictures of me. I don't like the paparazzi, and I value my privacy. I would appreciate any advice you can give me on how to deal with my humans. I want to be happy in my new home, but I just don't know how to connect with them. Thank you, Celeste

This is my Expert Reply
Today I use the colour pink, as this is renowned for being the colour love, and hopefully will be the purrfect choice for this particular purroblem.

Dear Celeste, Thank mew for reaching out to me. I understand that adjusting to a new home can be challenging, particularly when mew have high standards like yourself. However, I believe that with a little effort, mew can create a loving bond with your humans.

Here is a seven-point strategy plan to help mew overcome your immediate negative feelings towards your humans: 1. Show them affection. Try rubbing against their legs, purring when they pet mew, or giving them a nudge to show that mew are there with them.

2. Play with them. Humans love interactive playtime, so try batting around a toy mouse, chasing a laser pointer, or engaging in other activities that they enjoy sharing with mew.

3. Be patient. It takes time to build a relationship, so don't give up too quickly. Keep trying, and mew will see results in time.

4. Show interest in their activities. If they are watching TV or reading a book, try sitting next to them and observing. This will help mew learn more about them and their habits.

5. Be vocal. Meow when mew want attention or when mew are happy. Humans love to hear their cats meow, and it's an excellent way to communicate with them.

6. Show your purrsonality. Don't be afraid to be yourself and show your humans your quirks. Purrsonal self-expression is very impawtant. Whether mew are a curious explorer or a lazy napper, let them see who mew are the REAL mew!

7. Treats. Everyone loves treats, so try accepting their offerings and see if that helps build a connection. Mew might find that you enjoy certain types of treats, and this can be a way to bond with your humans over a shared love of food. Remember, Celeste, building a bond with your new humans will take time and effort. But if mew follow these steps, I am confident that mew will be happy in your new home in no time. Don't give up, but do give them a bit of slack as they too have to get used to mew. It is a big adjustment for both sides, but I know that mew will be best furiends in no time. Best of luck

Yours most sincerely
Dr. Basil

  1. That is most excellent advice and I hope that wee one takes it all seriously! Thanks for joining Angel Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  2. You are spot on, relationships take time. I do hope she can gently teach the family, however, not to be too grabby with her when she isn't in the mood to be held. It's not fun to be touched when you just don't want to be.

  3. That is very good advice. I hope she soon settles in with her new family.

  4. I could have used this advice 11 years ago Dr. Basil. Precious

  5. This advice goes both ways. We're going through this right now with our new kitty, Lil' Bit. We give her love and lots of room. She's fitting in just fine.

    Dr. Basil always gives such great advice.

    I linked this post to Awww Mondays.

    Have a purrfect day and week. Scritches all around and a big hug to mom. ♥

  6. DR Basil! YOU are absolutely THE expert. That was the best advice I have ever read. On all counts!

  7. Hehehehe. Baby talk is a huge problem! #AwwMondays

  8. Wise advice for sure, Dr. Basil!

  9. Dr. Basil you have excellent advice for a new cat home. We know of a new kitten that is in a furriends home and we will have her read your advice. Sounds oh so good to us. ~The Ts

  10. Really great advice you're so super purrfect x😽

  11. Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.
